What are the best screen room tents

During your camping planning phase, if you have been looking for family tents then perhaps you have come across the term “screen room tent”. So, what is a screen room tent exactly?

Some brands of multi-room tents include a so-called screened porch, or a floorless area covered by transparent mesh fabric. These tents are mostly suitable for summer, and they are perfect for camping in the warm weather. The mesh fabric allows natural light and heat to penetrate the tent itself, which makes it not such a great product for the colder season. It also allows you to enjoy the nature and outdoors from the comfort of yout tent, without worrying about leaves or bugs entering your tent.

Types of screen room tents

If you are not yet completely sold, and wish to learn more about tents with screen rooms, below you can read about the various types of tents that present this feature.

Dome style tent or cabin style tent?

Depending on the shape of the tent itself, you can find either dome tents or cabin tents. Tents which have a dome shape usually have shorter, curved walls, which can sometimes be less convenient due to the lack of headspace. The benefit of dome tents is their aerodynamic shape, which makes them highly resistant against the wind and allows them to be much sturdier against harsher weather conditions, such as snow.

Cabin tents are getting increasingly more popular among families going on camping trips together. A cabin tent usually has multiple doors and windows, high walls, lots of storage and sleeping space, and it can feel much more comfortable and homely than a dome shaped tent. It is important to keep in mind, however, that cabin tents are only suitable for the warm season, and not so much for colder weather.

Screen room with a floor or without?

Depending on your needs and preferences, you should also think about whether you want your screen room to have a floor underneath or not.

Screen rooms with a floor underneath are usually treated as another tent room: they are completely covered and protected, and the floor means that you can also use it as a room to hang out during the day, or to store your belongings. It is not recommended to sleep inside a screen room as it is not fully protected from the rain, due to the mesh walls surrounding it.

If you don’t need the extra room, then buying a tent with screen room no floor underneath can be a better choice for you. You can use a floorless screen room for various things, such as using a grill and cooking, or placing a small table and chairs for eating without worrying about ruining the floor fabric. The mesh walls provide some protection from bugs and other things, but it allows the smell to escape and not linger inside the tent.

There are various things to take into consideration when buying a screen room tent, but it is guaranteed to improve your summer camping trip by a lot. There is no reason to miss out on this amazing product.
